Xmas Goats and Voldemort

Singing goat tops Xmas carol chart

A SINGING goat has topped the farmyard charts with a rendition of the Christmas carol Hark the Herald Angels Sing.

Thousands watched Greta "sing" the ditty in an online competition.

She was competing with her four-legged friends Gertrude and Gladys, who sang Oh Come All Ye Faithful and Silent Night.

And when voting closed on Sunday it was a landslide victory, with Greta taking more than 50 per cent of the vote.

The closely-fought competition was run by goat dairy company St Helens Farm in Seaton Ross, near York, after workers discovered the animals produce more milk when music is playing in the parlour.

Farm owner Angus Wielkopolski said: “We were amazed to see how many people watched our talented trio and we were glad to give them all their moment in the spotlight. 
“It’s been great fun and we must of course congratulate Greta on becoming the St Helens Farm Christmas number one.

“She might get an extra helping of Christmas pudding this year!”

Last week it was reported that goats produce more milk when listening to Mariah Carey’s All I Want for Christmas Is You. 
But playing Wizzard's I Wish It Could Be Christmas Every Day actually slowed milk production. 

OK.  We can’t have a weird goat post without Voldemort.  Check this handsome fellow out…

Isn't Xmas wonderful?
